elementary is a software platform; a unified computer operating system. We have a commitment to a particular toolkit (GTK+) and support a preferred programming language (Vala). We decide how our apps will behave. Sometimes we take control and shape the out-of-the-box experience as much as we possibly can by creating our own apps. We've created an application development framework (Granite) and other developer tools that are designed to help developers build apps specifically for our platform.

I heard it's good so I can't rate too bad, but there's no EFI support. I download the disc image and mount it so I can copy it to a USB and boot on my UEFI pc but there's no EFI folder. my PC does not have legacy mode. There's no email to write to for support, I almost bought this on the website but so far glad I didn't because it wouldn't even had worked anyway. Not trying to be a negative nancy but just expressing my experience. If they add EFI support for my pc I'll gladly give it a more fair rating and support.
Quite Pretty but wastes too many vertical space. Wing panel + window bar + menu bar + plank.... Plank can be moved to right or left side. It's good. But still too narrow in 16:9 stupid latops. Wing panel must have auto hide feature! Or they must develop something like super wing application for luna.
thin & sluggish like VISTA. April 2014 I installed on an HP notebook and it is slow & thin and will drive users of faster tuxes nuts. Don't see an audience for the distro, except for a MAC user. sorry. Voting low to counter spam votes
